Instructing a physician to provide an effective referral is violating the rights of physicians to act in accordance with their conscience. It involves their indirect participation in procedures that are morally repugnant to them, It compels them to give up their basic human right to freedom of moral choice and makes them agents of the government. No one should HAVE to participate in the taking of a human life, whether someone is asking them to kill their preborn child, or asking to be killed themselves. You are asking our doctors to cross a line and do a job that most people would be horrified to do. It is not surprising that a country that has open season on babies up to the moment of birth (no law against abortion at all) is now going down the road of highest rates of medically assisted deaths in the world.
